Library staff may contact borrowers who have items out past their due dates. If overdue items are not returned promptly, borrowers will be invoiced for the item and all library privileges will be revoked until the item is returned to the library and/or all fines are paid.

 

Replacement of lost or damaged items

If books on loan are lost or damaged beyond repair, it is the responsibility of the borrower to pay for their replacement. At the discretion of the chief librarian, borrowers persistently retaining their books beyond their due date may have their membership revoked without prior notification.
